Resistance Training: What Is It and What Are the Benefits?

I’ve been hearing a lot about resistance training lately, so I thought I’d write about it and give you my take on what it is and what good it can do for you.

First of all, resistance training is a type of exercise where there is some sort of resistance to the movements you are doing.  This resistance is usually some sort of counter weight.  It can be barbells, weight machines, resistance bands or heck, even the resistance of your own body.

It’s the feeling you get when you want your muscle to go one way and there’s a force pulling or pushing in the opposite way.  Get it?
